In complete contrast, the choir will also perform Vivaldi’s Gloria after the interval.

This music was written in Venice in the early 18th century when Venice was the pleasure centre of Europe and visitors flocked to the city to hear Vivaldi’s music.

The evening will showcase the skills of local soloists; Mezzo soprano Carmel Wake and soprano Heather Jane Taylor.

Carmel is described by Daniel as “one of the most talented members of the choir with such a versatile and beautiful voice. It will be privilege to listen to her singing solo in these pieces of music.”

It performs three concerts each year, covering a wide range of music.

The choir is always keen to welcome new members.
